As I continue my exploration of all things veggie, I stumble upon many new discoveries. My most recent discovery has been Quinoa. I literally had to look it up on YouTube to see how it’s pronounced. The answer: “keen-wa”.
I bought a package in the frozen food aisle.
It was super easy to make. I put a tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet on medium heat. I dumped in the bag of quinoa and 1/4 cup of water. I covered the skillet and let it cook for about 8 minutes while stirring it occasionally.
While this was going on, I prepared myself a cute side salad to go along with it.
After the 8 minutes were up, a scooped some quinoa onto a plate and topped it off with some Italian blend cheese. I’m pretty sure I put cheese on just about everything.
The result was delicious.The mixture with barley, red rice and sea salt gave it so much flavor that I did not put any added spices in the mix.
Quinoa is now a kitchen necessity.
